In the late summer of 2011, I had the opportunity to do some design work for up-and-coming author, Ken Gainor, for his new debut book, Paladin Corps – Book 1, a science-fiction adventure. In his words:
Paladin Corps. – Book 1 is a sci-fi action novel that follows Kevin Lahzur on his reluctant journey from disheartened local cop, to potential savior of the human race. Along the way, he must face the tests of the Concordium: an intersteallar alliance of alien races, and prove himself, and humanity as a whole, to be worth saving. Political corruption, corporate greed, hatred and fear all stand in his way, and Kevin must discover if he is strong enough to face the challenges ahead… Before it’s too late.
Ken was an absolute delight to work with. He already had a very specific idea as to what he needed, which made the process very smooth, giving me more time to concentrate on perfecting his design instead of trying to determine the initial design.
If you haven’t had a chance to check out his work yet, make sure you do. It’s a very cool story. Find Paladin Corps on iTunes (K. Gainor in the iTunes store), at http://kgainor.squarespace.com/ … or over at http://paladincorps1.libsyn.com/
